About this title


Sport Finance, Second Edition, grounds students in the real world of financial management in sport, showing them how to apply financial concepts and appreciate the importance of finance in sound sport management and operations. Designed for sport finance courses in a sport management curriculum, this text distinguishes the skills and principles of finance from those of economics.
This second edition includes five case studies that are referred to throughout the book. These studies - in professional, college, private business, manufacturing, and not-for-profit settings - represent the breadth of the sport world where finance is a critical component of success. As an added benefit to instructors, several ancillary materials are included to make the topics more comprehensive to students.

He serves on the board of governors of the Society of Litigation Economists and is the coeditor of Litigation Economics Review.

Dr. Shapiro has written and presented numerous papers on the valuation of employee stock options, the appraisal of closely held firms, the calculation of damages, and applications of financial event study methodologies to examine the effects of litigation on shareholders. In addition, he has provided expert testimony and served as a consultant in legal matters that required the measurement of damages resulting from wrongful death, personal injury, and wrongful employment termination; the computation of lost profits in commercial litigation; and the analysis of relevant markets in antitrust cases.
